Judgement




I'd like to think that I don't judge others, but unfortunately sometimes I find myself doing just that.  When I stop to think about it, I find that it has to do with me...not them.  It is usually based on one of my own insecurities.  Judging them so I can feel better about myself.  Sounds ugly when I put it out there like that.  I am going to work on being more mindful of this.

I've written before on my blog about blogging.  I obviously enjoy it and it is my main connection to other people who are sober.  I really feel like I am making connections with people (yes YOU).  It is strange though for it to be done anonymously.  I understand why (as I am anonymous myself), but sometimes wish there was more.  

Anyhow...all of this rambling about blogging has a point.  As I was checking in on all of my blogging friends yesterday morning I noticed that one of the blogs was gone when I clicked on it.  Just gone.  Today?  Still gone.  So of course I am left wondering what happened.  Is she drinking?  Is she ok?  Will she come back?  I hope she is well and no matter what has happened I hope she will be back.  Of course there is no judgement here, only concern...and the reminder of how fragile sobriety can be.

The sunrises have been beautiful lately.  It's usually as I sit here doing the sober blogging thing that I notice the beautiful pink clouds.  The start of another sober day.


Pink Clouds

  1. Dear TMSN,
    I am so glad you are seeing pretty clouds!
    I know what you are feeling about a blogger and their blog gone.
    It makes me sad, but then my husband said maybe they just got tired of blogging.
    I want everyone, including myself, to succeed in this quest!

    1. I feel that way too, and like we are in this together. You are right though...there could be lots of different reasons.

  2. Hopefully she is ok! I think blogging is hard work and not for everyone. Hopefully that's all it is. It is strange being anonymous isn't it? Putting down the glass

    1. That's a great point. Just because I have found a love for blogging does not mean it's for everyone. It is so strange...I feel like I am getting to know you guys but in such a different way.

  3. I always feel a little disturbed when a blog 'disappears' but I know it can become time consuming. And sometimes it's hard to put up stuff that isn't that bright. But the good news is there are enough sober bloggers that i don't have to feel alone or isolated. Glad you're one of them.

    Hugs,

    SR
